Pakistani fielding at it's very best. Cheers Saeed.

Really am yet to be convinced by Kieswetter.
Does Keiswetter have any shots other than the lift over mid off/cover?
Think we need to give him a little longer before making a judgement. He didn't go too well in his first 2 ODi's before making that century. I'm happy to stick with him atm, need to give an opening pair a decent run.
Kieswetter dropped twice at mid-on. Just needs to make the most of the chances now.
Seriously, how does an international team get to be so horrendously bad at fielding!? Just boggles the mind. If you've played cricket for 10+ years at a high level, as all of these players have done, how do you not know how to ****ing catch a ball? And even if, somehow, by the time you get to the national team you're still not quite sure how to catch a ball hit directly at you, that's why the have coaches and go to all those training sessions. Seriously don't know how Pakistani fans deal with it all.
Still, as (I think) SS said during the Aus-Pak series, it's at least comforting to know that I'm better than a number of professional players at some element of the game.
Lumb's started well anyway, oh and that was better from Craig. Another shot, which is nice.
Surprisingly, Lumb has been quite convincing at International level thus far. Not made a score of note yet, but looked comfortable on all 3 surfaces he's played on. I think these 2 have the potential to be a very successful opening pair in T20 cricket if given time. I still think Kieswetter has the potential to be a fine player, needs to be persisted with for a little while though. Can't keep going through opening pairs every series/tournament.
Good over that. 19 off it.
